The Sand Creek Community Schools Board of Education approved this morning, at a special 6 a.m. board meeting, changes to the districts COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan in response to the Public Health Order issued yesterday by the Lenawee Health Department.  This Public Health Order (2021-1) updated quarantine requirements within the educational setting.  Please see attached a copy of this Public Health Order (2021-1) as well as the response from all Lenawee County Superintendents.  In summary, the following changes were approved and are effective immediately.

  1. Sand Creek Schools will no longer require students who were in close contact with a COVID-19 positive person while at school to quarantine from school or school-associated activities, unless quarantine is required by the Lenawee County Health Department such as in the case of a school outbreak or if the close contact occurred outside of school (for example, at home).
  2. We will continue to conduct contact tracing and will inform those individuals who are believed to have been in close contact with a COVID-19 positive person.  The decision to quarantine will be voluntary, unless one of the situations stated above applies.
  3. If a close contact is or becomes symptomatic, they will be assumed positive and must quarantine.

Please contact the district with any questions.
